Attaching A Crimp Coil To Rattail Cord?

How do you attach a crimp coil to rattail cord?

I am trying to make a necklace and have tried to use my crimping pliers and regular pliers to crimp the coil but it doesn't work.

Is there another way to do this? What am I doing wrong?

Attatching A Crimp Coil To A Rattail Cord

What is a rattail cord, and what type of crimp do you use on it?

When in doubt, I always glue using G-S Hypo cement, any of the Loc-tite gels, E6000, etc.

Apply glue, insert into crimp coil, use pliers to crimp the first ring of the coil down hard. Let it dry as instructed.That always does it for me.

It has worked for me on suede,leather and rubber necklaces and bracelets.

Hope this is the info you needed.
